Dezeen’s YouTube passes a quarter million subscribers

  • by

Dezeen’s YouTube channel, where you can watch all our video content including documentaries and interviews with architects and designers, has surpassed 250,000 subscribers.

To celebrate this milestone, we’ve commissioned an illustration from designer Adryan Tunde Abii-Smith.

London-based product designer and multi-disciplinary creative Tunde Abii-Smith has previously designed Pride artwork for Scottish footwear retailer Schuh and a deck of affirmation cards for the mindfulness and wellness influencer Hindz.

His design for Dezeen’s YouTube milestone incorporates famous buildings from the last 100 years – can you identify the different designs? Leave your best guesses in the comments!

Reminiscent of Lina Ghotmeh’s Stone Garden housing in Beirut – but coloured in a bright YouTube red – an imaginary and striking building dominates the scene. The central window is shaped after the YouTube play button.

To mark 250,000 YouTube subscribers, Tunde Abii-Smith told Dezeen he wanted to illustrate community.

“The YouTube building showcases a community living within it, being supported by it and nurturing it,” the designer said.
